Arena Report - Wachovia Arena at Casey Plaza
Tonight, SmackDown comes back to Wilkes-Barre, Penn. for the first time since January. At the Wachovia Arena at Casey Plaza, reigning World Heavyweight Champion King Booker will address his loyal subjects in eastern Pennsylvania just days after the Biggest Party of the Summer.
The last time SmackDown was in town was on Jan. 6, just two days before New Year's Revolution. Batista and Rey Mysterio challenged MNM for the WWE Tag Team Championship in a steel cage. The champions' win came with the help of Mark Henry, who amazingly broke the chain on the door with his bare hands. JBL also won a Falls Count Anywhere Match to kick off the show, but -- along with Jillian -- was later stalked by The Boogeyman. Will JBL suffer a similar fate this time, now that The Boogeyman's return has fans and Superstars on pins and needles?
When RAW was last broadcasted from Wilkes-Barre on May 9, 2005, Batista defended his World Heavyweight Championship in a Handicap Match. What will be his next step toward regaining the World Heavyweight Championship after a bittersweet DQ win at SummerSlam? Will he take out some of his aggression when the powerful pair of himself and Lashley reform to take on King Booker and two of his most loyal subjects, William Regal and Finlay?
The Wachovia Arena, which seats 8,300, was built in 1998. It is home of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins hockey team and also frequently plays host to NBA exhibition games, NCAA basketball games, circus performances, and concerts.
SmackDown's first visit to Wilkes-Barre, in what was then named the First Union Arena, dates back to July 18, 2002. That night, Chavo Guerrero extended a challenge to Rey Mysterio, who had yet to make his WWE in-ring debut. After coming full circle in four years, what will happen when Rey and Chavo see each other again? Will Vickie Guerrero finally be able to get this rivalry off her mind? Find out tonight on SmackDown at 8/7 CT on UPN.
